DIY bike basket liner

Bike baskets are great on beach bikes, cruise and commuter/city style bikes. I brightened my wicker bike basket with a coat of white spray paint and a new basket liner. I'll show you how-to make your own bike basket liner using an up-cycled tank top!

  17. Oh my gosh. . . I LOVE this project! I have a plain bike basket on my cruiser right now. I love the idea of painting it. Kudos on figuring out that tank tops with slight modification work as basket liners. That's creative genius, my friend!:)

  18. So adorable. I love that you used clothes to make the liner. I also love that the clerk at the bike store was going to use a basket on a small bike for a card receptacle. Brilliant!

  19. I love this!! I've been looking to make a basket liner/ basket bag for my new bike too! This is just the thing! I'm thinking, maybe I can add a drawstring to the top elastic too if I fold it over? So that I can shut it as well. Hmmm...ideas whirring! Thanks for the inspiration! :-)
